Deviant Septet

When: Fri., March 11, 8 p.m. 2016

L’Histoire du soldat (“The Soldier’s Tale”) is one of Stravinsky’s more unusual pieces. Originally it was a theatrical work about a soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil. The music is scored for violin, double bass, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. It abounds with strange, glistening harmonies, constantly shifting meters, and bizarre dances. The Deviant Septet is built around L’Histoire, and this concert will feature the full suite. The ensemble also plays a set of pieces by Duke University Ph.D. students, written during a yearlong residency. —Dan Ruccia
